News

Do you consider large scale problems & solutions?

The Infrastructural turn symposium invites three renowned, international practitioners to discuss their work in the expanded field of architecture in Europe and North America. Each is at the forefront of a growing movement of deploying design as a synthetic element within the rethinking and planning of larger systems and networks: infrastructure, agriculture, energy, urbanism, landscape, waste.

This fully funded (free to attend) event addresses cross disciplinary infrastructural issues with a three speakers and a debate.

We are expecting a wide audience – from representatives from national, regional and local government, environmental designers, engineers to architects and planners.

The talks will followed by a round table discussion hosted by Professor Thomas Jefferies of the Manchester School of Architecture.
